Style Diary: Singin' the Blues
I hate to have a favourite but.. I do.
I honestly don't remember how I got this Blue Blazer. One of those random vintage finds that I bought probably under or about $10, something I just left in my wardrobe for a future occasion and what not. It was only recently I took it off the hanger (ripped off the dry cleaner's tag) and put it on.
Do we all remember Sex and the City 2? Remember Carrie's brown blazer that she always wearing throughout the movie (even with that FAB Emilio Pucci gown?) well this is my 'Carrie Blazer'. There isn't anything uber special about it. It's just your standard linen blazer, lined, big pockets, slightly oversized, uber 80's shoulder pads... but there's something about it, I can just chuck it on and I'm happy with my outfit. Weird no?
It's such a versatile casual piece. For this look I paired the blazer with basic tones. Simple black jeasn and a grey tank I made myself. The flash from my camera really brought out the blues in the blazer making it look much richer. Accessorizing I added my oversized cuff, vintage mini briefcase and a simple pair of black lace ups. Just keeping it casual. I guess everyone has that piece in their closet that they always wear to death, and this is mine!
